Heading into the Valencia Grand Prix, both Alex Rins and Johann Zarco are coming off a strong podium finish at the Malaysia GP that left both riders ranked with 149 points in the world standings.
Two riders, two teams, one spot to roundout the top five ranked riders in the world.
Looking back to last year’s race, Yamaha rider Johann Zarco cranked out a 2nd place podium finish on the Circuit Ricardo Tormo and Suzuki rider Alex Rins was close behind in 4th place.
With exceptionally competitive historical combined indexes, we expect to see both riders go all out to qualify for a top grid position and to focus solely on beating the other one across the finish line.
Historical Combined Indexes:
- Johann Zarco: 13.0729
- Alex Rins: 15.9282
A balance between consistency and speed is key for riders and with rain the forecast, we may see a wet qualifying and/or race to conclude the 2018 MotoGP season!
